(SXSW 2017 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #2311: L.A. Salami

Lookman Adekunle Salami – aka the slightly more hip-sounding artist L.A. Salami – starred in our TGTF Guide to SXSW 2017 post last week featuring songwriters alongside jazz and world music artists from London. (You can read the whole post through here.) Ahead of appearing in Austin, he’s revealed the video for ‘& Bird’, a sweet tune taken from his 2016 debut album ‘Dancing With Bad Grammar’, which NPR’s Bob Boilen called “…a hidden gem in 2016, just a hint of what the future holds for this talented visionary.” The shadowy promo shows Salami playing guitar and melodica, but your gaze can never be fixed for too long, I’m assuming to reflect the beguiling confusion one feels when in love. Watch the new video for ‘& Bird’ below. L.A. Salami is scheduled to perform at 4 PM Thursday 16 March at the Showtime Twin Peaks showcase at Clive Bar, as well as 11 PM at Valhalla as part of the Sunday Best label showcase.
